Please can all children bring in wellies in a bag or at least a change of footwear so that we don't tread the outside mud inside!Thank you.
A polite reminder that all children need to have a water bottle in school please. I have been providing water to those that are thirsty in the afternoons but it would be more convenient if they had their own bottle that can be stored in class and taken home on a Friday for cleaning. Thank you.
Evening all!It was lovely to hear all the children's news from half term.Well done to those children that made it into the Leader in costume!Awesome.A big thank you to the very kind children that brought me an unexpected gift today.I was delighted!Another busy week ahead with the theatre trip on Thursday pm in Manchester.Please check your emails for travelling arrangements and timings.

Evening everyone!Another very busy week nearly done.Nearly all the Patagonia homework is in and I have to say, its a very high standard.Well done!
We have been focusing on 2d shapes this week and we have introduced the children to some new vocabulary.I'll give a merit to any pupil who can say and spell the word 'quadrilateral!'.Here's the homework for this week......
Go on a shape hunt around the house and draw the household objects that you have found in your homework book.Look for quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons,octogons, (heptagons, 7 sides and decagons if you're feeling really clever!) right angled triangles,equilateral triangles and parallelograms. Have fun!
17.10.17 Evening everyone. Ophelia knocked my internet out and the school wifi was also offline today.All is normal again so the spelling lists have been updated on Spellodrome. Well done to all those who have been practising.Have a look at the PDF to see how we use Spellodrome in school.
There's website maintenance taking place over the weekend so I won't be able to update the site on Sunday night with the new spelling list.I'll do this on Monday 23rd.
Monday is a busy day!Its Forest school and parents evening.We are looking at the environmental artist, Andy Goldsworthy and recreating art in his style with natural materials.Have a look at his work on the internet, its fantastic.If you are out and about over the weekend, please collect twigs, pebbles, leaves, conkers, pine cones or flowers that are lying about to bring into school.Don't forget the waterproofs!Thanks.
Hi Everyone.I can't believe how quickly the week has flown and that it's Friday tomorrow!The children have been working really hard this week and have produced some excellent work in class.
I've had half of the maths homework books in from last week.Quite a few were missing.I'll mark both pieces when I have all the books in so I know where I am.The homework is a consolidation of the week's skills and can be done independently. Thanks for your on-going support with this.
FYI there's a Spellodrome session after school next Thursday for parents.Please email school if you'd like to attend.
Well done to those children that have completed their homework on Patagonia already.I'm very impressed with the time and effort you have put in!It doesn't need to be completed until the 18th so don't worry if you haven't started yet.It can be done in the English homework book or on paper.I'll leave that up to you.
Due to a technical hitch some children have had access to rather a lot of words!!Apologies!I have hidden those now other than the ones they are supposed to be working on.The previous week's list will disappear at some point but I have a record of those spelt correctly and those that need to be worked on. If you would like to have your child's spelling log to practice with pen and paper as well, just send a message and I will pop it in their bags for them.Please be patient while we get this program up and running,we're still learning. Thankyou.
Forest school on Monday :) please bring your wellies in a plastic bag and don't forget the waterproof coat.We will be out in the drizzle too!Thanks.
There is an exciting science competition available for the children to enter if they would like to.
